I’m so pleased to announced today the appointment of three key additions to the management team. These new team members will help extend Pathbrite’s reach as the leading ePortfolio platform in the K-12 and Higher Ed markets. They include:
- Derek Gordon, Chief Marketing & Sales Officer - Prior to joining Pathbrite, Derek was a marketing strategy consultant working with brands such as Daylife, Eventbrite, Visage Mobile, Brocade, Rackspace and Cisco. Before his work as a consultant, he served as VP of Marketing for Yield Software, which was acquired by Autonomy / HP; VP of Marketing and Interim CEO of Engage, which was acquired by Spark Networks; Interim CEO and VP of Marketing at Technorati; Senior Director of Marketing Communications at Thomson Learning (now Thomson Reuters); and Director of Communications at DigitalThink, the pioneering e-learning company that had a successful IPO and was eventually acquired by Convergys. Derek maintains a blog on marketing strategy and best practice called Daily Casserole.
- Christopher Gray, Chief Product Officer – Chris has led the product development efforts at Pathbrite since September 2011 and now assumes his present role. Before joining Pathbrite, Gray served as a product development and strategy consultant at Symantec where he launched the computer services business, NortonLive. Prior to that he worked as Director of Training for PeopleSoft, and created the online learning platform for Veritas.
